I've got the Garmin 60C and the standard Garmin handlebar mount. I'm using it with a trike
, so instead of being mounted to the handlebar it's mounted to a bar end which, in turn, is mounted to a vertical mirror mount post.
Yesterday, riding over a packed chipseal road surface, the mount was vibrating quite a bit. The unit kept shutting off, which I assumed at first was due to a low battery. But I still had 2 bars left, and later on took it in the car with no shutdowns.
Then, I thought that perhaps the battery springs weren't holding the batteries in place. Bu there aren't spings, just clips, and the battery compartment seems pretty snug to me.
So-given that the unit has no moving parts...would it shut down if it's getting rattled around too much? Has anyone else experienced this?
